STATEN ISLAND, New York – This is the unofficial start of summer, so why not spend the weekend of Remembrance Day surrounded by sun and surf?
It’s not too late to get a vacation apartment through VRBO.com, where you can easily book anything from a small condominium to a home that has 20 bedrooms, easily online in minutes.
We found that a number of homes are still available for a three-day weekend, though most indicate they rent only to adults and families – with no prom or teen graduation groups.
Here’s a sample of what we found on Jersey Beach at VRBO.com:
Seaside Heights, known for its boardwalk, rides and games, is a short drive from the Outerbridge Passage. The town has food, facilities and a water park for families, and houses for rent move between cottages and more sophisticated spaces that can accommodate a large gathering.
House with private thin:
We found a great home with a private deck and three full bedrooms just half a block from the beach and boardwalk at Seaside Heights on VRBO.com. It has a washer and dryer, dishwasher, central air, granite counters, TV and Wi-Fi. The house is located in a very quiet part of Seaside Heights, according to the listing on VRBO.com., And has received five-star ratings in previous reviews. Families can book a Memorial Day weekend for a total of $ 1,250 per night. (See photo above)

If you are looking for a quiet experience and are willing to travel further afield along Garden State Parkway, Cape May is a quaint and quiet town with charm, yet it is close to wineries, shops, galleries and gourmet restaurants. You will be enthralled by the charming Victorian homes and tranquil beauty of the area. And its nearby towns provide a more affordable option, but are close to attractions.
We found this two-bedroom cottage, located on a beachfront property in the historic town of Townbank, available for rent during Remembrance Day weekend. The house comfortably sleeps six, according to the listing on VRBO.com. It offers stunning views over the dunes from the sun room for daily dolphin watching and sunset.
The area is perfect for a beach walk, and no beach badges are needed.

The cottage sits in a large, fenced white yard, and offers plenty of space to hang out outside. Access to the beach is simply through the gate, down the short dune and sloping moderately. Pets are welcome, at an additional cost. To book this house for $ 350 a night, visit VRBO.com.
